    Company 21 is being built and is to be staffed with a Engine company when completed.
    Good possibility to see another class coming in July.....

    The house I'm talking about would have been on Courthouse Road at State Route 288. Cut completely out.

    I had thought that they already broke ground on one. It's going to take a lot more than the 14 new candidates to staff it not to mention all the rumored people retiring.

    The new firehouse is being built already and I think is supposed to open around the first of next year.

    Capt is correct about the other house at 288 and courthouse being postponed for the time being at least.

    As of now it does look like there is going to be a recruit class starting in July. Good luck.

    Default July Class

    So if there is a July class when do you think they would start contacting people?

    For clarification the station he is talking about here is station 22. They have already broke ground on station 21 which is scheduled to open January 1st, 2015 as a single engine station.

    I am sure they are going to be running a school this summer, unknown exact date, figure the class size will be 17-20. I would guess they would start contacting people about 3 months prior to the start date. With the 12 firefighter positions for station 21 and all the people that are retiring they would have to run this next school, the OT budget would be destroyed if they didn't.

    Default Sounds encouraging

    30+ sounds great! So we should hear something around mid march? I'm hoping those people that got the eligibility letters must have a pretty fair shot right? Hoping and praying for this! Good luck guys!

    Guys, considering the timeline from call for conditional offer to academy, should we be expecting calls this month or the next? I'm assuming this month as for the 48th it was calls in August, September for all the remaining info, and late October the academy; agree? Or should we wait for April?

    I have been hearing they will call three months prior to academy. I assume it will be April.

    So got some news from the inside that should keep you guys motivated. Right now they want a class of 30, from my source they only have 28 on the eligibility list, that right! So this looks beyond promising hopefully April will be a great month.

    The new fire house 21 is under construction now.This may be where some of the news hires may end up as well as vacancies all over the county.


    Good luck to all who achieve on becoming a member.

    Just to let you know the training isn't a cake walk.

    April is the month guys and gals. My sources are telling me the same as you DJ except I am hearing anywhere from 31 to 36. The Captain is right. Use your time in waiting well. Stay ready so you don't have to get ready. Praying for you all. Good luck!

    Also class 48 is scheduled to graduate this Thursday April 3rd, if that's the case Friday might be a great day to make sure your phones work.

    So would you guys say these "sources from the inside" are fairly reliable? Just asking because I've been told some things (this time and back when they were choosing the list for the fall class) that proved to be untrue. Everyone was like "I heard this and that from so and so...." Lol But so far everything I've been told is pretty consistent with what you all are saying. The number 31 keeps popping up And DJ, let's hope you're right about Friday!!!!!

    Default Sources

    I wonder that as well. I called last week and was told there is no news on where we are in the process currently. Hopefully the sources are right. I will be a nervous wreck this month.

    Guys, your right nothing is 100% other than the CALL but stay strong regardless. If you believe in prayer, put for hope in that you are being prayed for. It's been a long process and I hope I get to meet you all but for now I choose to believe a door is being opened in this job. We have done all we can up to this point and now we just have to wait a little longer. Keep your heads up.
